36 Social distancing is usually related to the holding of beliefs and stereotypes about the stigmatized group and to the presence of negative emotions regarding it. It is interesting to note that these three components of discrimination against the stigmatized do not invariably go together. For example, a person might feel kindly toward a stigmatized social group and hold no negative stereotypes about its members, but maintain a large social distance because such action is supported or required by the norms of the community.
